After about 5K miles, a warning light came on showing "Low coolant". Took it into dealership for it's first oil changed and noted the warning. They just called me and said they found coolant leaking into the engine because they found a couple of plugs. The exhaust smoked when I'd start it (grey smoke). They said there shouldn't be any problems because they've fixed the plugs and changed the oil. My gut tells me that any water residue inside the block, manifold or cylinders is going to cause problems down the road. They are telling me not so. What's the truth?

Sorry to hear about your maintenance issue. If you go to the top of the page you'll see advanced search. Search low coolant. There's a couple threads. Attention to coolant thread go to the last page. See #32 & down.

If it took 5000 miles to happen, it was truly a drop or 2 at a time and should pose no long term problem. Just make sure it is noted VERY thoroughly and make it clear for next X miles/years you expect full warranty for any related events ie head gaskets, motor seizing, oil burning, blow rings etc that may happen. Make sure it includes any turbo plumbing as well. If nothing happens you both win, if something happens, LR should step up. BTW what year? Was this an early issue or is it ongoing?
